Consider a Fog Radio Access Network (FRAN) in which a cloud base station (CBS) is responsible for scheduling user-equipments (UEs) to a set of radio resource blocks (RRBs) of Fog Access Points (F-APs) and for allocating power to the RRBs. The conventional graphical approach for solving the coordinated scheduling and power control problem in FRAN requires prohibitive computational complexity. This letter, instead, proposes a low-complexity solution to the problem under the constraint that all the scheduled UEs can decode the requested files sent by their associated RRBs/F-APs. Unlike previous solution that requires constructing the total power control graph, the proposed computationally efficient solution is developed using a single power control subgraph. Numerical results reveal a close-to-optimal performance of the proposed method in terms of throughput maximization for correlated channels with a significant reduction in the computational complexity.
